BACKGROUND Hox genes encode transcriptional regulatory proteins that are largely responsible for establishing the body plan of all metazoan organisms. A subset of Hox genes is expressed during the period of organogenesis and into adulthood. hoxb-13 is a recently-described member of the Hox gene family that is expressed in the spinal cord, hindgut, and(More)
The 7q31 locus contains several genes affected in cancer progression. Although evidences exist regarding its impact on tumorigenesis, the role of genetic alterations and the expressions of locus-related genes are still controversial. Our study aimed to define the 7q31 copy number alterations in primary melanomas, primary-metastatic tumor pairs and cell(More)
A new Type IIS restriction endonuclease was identified, partially purified and characterized from a Bacillus cereus subsp. fluorescens strain. The enzyme recognizes the nonpalindromic sequence ACGGC and cleaves at a distance from it. The cleavage appears to occur with a +/- 1 basepair uncertainty. Thus the cleavage and recognition site is as shown below:(More)
A family of expression plasmid vectors were constructed by fusing the strong P2 promoter of the rrnB gene of Escherichia coli (coding for ribosomal RNA) to the lac operator, thereby eliminating regulatory sequences from the rrnB gene and placing the expression under lac repressor control. This promoter proved to be stronger in vivo than the well-known(More)
It is well demonstrated that CCND1 amplification is a frequent event in the acral subtype of cutaneous malignant melanoma; however, its role in the other subtypes of the disease is still controversial. The objectives of this study were to evaluate genetic and expression alterations of CCND1 with a focus on primary cutaneous melanomas, to define BRAF and(More)
The complex terminator region of the Escherichia coli rrnB gene was analyzed by subcloning the terminators T1 and T2 and the inverted repeats IR1 and IR2 individually, or in various combinations, in a normal or inverted orientation into a terminator probe vector. The in vivo terminating efficiency was assayed by measuring the galactokinase activity encoded(More)
We describe here the construction of a family of expression vectors, based on the P2 promoter of the Escherichia coli rrnB gene by removing regulatory sequences downstream of the Pribnow-box and replacing them with the lac operator. These vectors allow cloning of foreign genes in such a way that their products are synthesized either in the form of fusion(More)
